CONYERS, Ga. -- The Rockdale County Sheriff's Office is investigating a shooting that left one man in jail and another with life-threatening injuries.

The shooting happened at around 7 p.m. Sunday at a house on Fieldstone View Lane SE in Conyers.

Rockdale County Sheriff's Inv. Michael Camp said 19-year-old Rashad Thompson is accused of shooting 25-year-old Sandino Aikens of Covington at least four times.

After shooting Aikens, Thompson ran to his home on nearby Country Trace, where he was arrested about half an hour later, Camp said.

Aikens is in critical condition at Grady Memorial Hospital. Thompson is being held in the Rockdale County Jail on an aggravated assault charge; more charges are possible, according to Camp.

An initial investigation revealed Aikens shot Thompson in the chest in December 2008, when the two were 21 and 15 years old, respectively. Aikens pleaded guilty to an aggravated assault charge in June 2010 and was sentenced to five years in prison, but was paroled a year later.

Camp said police believe Sunday's shooting was in retaliation to the earlier shooting, and that Thompson was upset that Aikens received parole.
